Brock Ruble is one of the top uncommitted offensive linemen left in the Mid-Atlantic. Last weekend the Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha stand out made the short trip to College Park for his official visit to Maryland.
"I definitely give the visit an 'A'," said the 6-foot-8, 321-pound Ruble. "I had a great time. I got to see everything I wanted to see. I saw a great game even though it was a little colder than I was used to.
"I got there on Friday and watched the pregame walk-throughs," he said. "After that we got something to eat and talked with the coaches for a little bit. The next day I watched their walk-through session at the hotel. After that I watched some film with the coaches. We went over schemes they ran and how they game plan for opponents. It was cool to learn stuff and also show what I know.
"I've been up there quite a few times," Ruble said. "Going this weekend was more of a follow up visit. I saw a lot of the same things I already knew about but I got a deeper sense of what they were doing academically."
Up next for Ruble is an official visit to N.C. State.
"I feel what is most effective is to go in there and just go with the flow so I'm not really expecting anything at N.C. State," he said. "Hopefully I'll see a great game and learn a lot about the academic side."
After his official visit to N.C. State, things get a little hazy for Ruble but he and his family are trying to work things out.
"Basketball is going on now," said Ruble. "I don't have any other visits planned after this official visit. My mom is starting to schedule some in home visits. That'll be kind of cool."
Ruble has taken an official visit to Florida State.
